I have been watching a few Youtube videos lately about blogging and this one caught my eye.
I am terrible at the actual graphic design element of blogging, which has always been a struggle for me so when I saw this I thought “I could do that!”.
I had a play around on PowerPoint and I could!
It’s from a Youtube channel called Start a Mom Blog, if you search for it in Youtube you’ll find it. She has lots of videos on the how-to parts of blogging, so definitely have a look. In the link below she shows you how to make some really easy printables that she uses as part of her email marketing to promote her blog. I think she uses them as freebie giveaways to entice her readers to either sign up for her newsletter or as free perks within the newsletter itself.
I had a go and here is what I managed in about 45 minutes of messing with colours and seeng how it works.
I did 2 sheets on blogging (because I have been watching so much lately on Youtube that it just sort of absorbed into my brain) and 1 random one on knitting which I was just trying out the colours. Have a look and see what you think, I am sure you can do something much much better than me, but it’s a really good idea to make more professional looking images than faff around in Microsoft Word for ages trying to make something look special.
If only I had known this for university! Oh how my presentations would have been prettified! Not to mention my note-taking in general!
Have a good evening! x
